Fate of Dreams 1
From Album Notes by Will Foreman: 'All of these songs are taken from a trilogy of autobiographical plays entitled The Fate of Dreams. Play One is The Death of the Author, Play Two-The Fall of God, and Three-The Rise of Icarus. Though each of these songs is autobiographical in nature, they are also visionary in origin, that is, they are intended not just as commentary on the times in which we live but as an expression of what is possible. For example, The Music of Life, which opens the first play, comes partly from my experience of looking at an artillery shell that landed nearby but failed to explode and partly from my belief that we truly need to imbue our spirits with the 'sounds of the Earth' if we are to survive as a species. The last song on Vol. I, If We Share a Vision, is also the last song in the third play, The Rise of Icarus, and is the first song sung by everyone in the legomena to the sacred rites of the Syntropic Mysteries, the initiation into a life of dedication to the creation of authentic democracies based on The Universal Model.'
